Hello everyone, and welcome to a new round of TAC. Before you complain about the lack
of fancy pictures and all of this, please let me remind you that this opening post is a
work under construction. I just got home from Germany and I haven't had time to read
all of the signup threads yet, but please bear with me while I update this post and
make it look pretty!

So, TAC 2014. It looks like we have established that there will be a Korean team for
TAC 2014 - and I guess that I will have to be its leader. So I guess I am head honcho
of this thread now ;)

First, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all members of last year's Team Crane
who were so successful at the previous TAC and have done so well in improving their
Korean. You are all lightyears ahead of me because I am pretty much a beginner in this
language!

Secondly, there has been demand for monthly challenges. I am not sure how I will
organise this yet, but they are on my to-do list. I'll update with some plans before
January 1st.

Thirdly, the team members (in as far as I know; PLEASE POST IN HERE IF I FORGET YOU, I
AM A MORTAL HUMAN BEING)"

Team Leader

tarvos

Awesome Team Members

Evita
Warp3
yuhakko
TheRealCZ
Tarko
Kerrie
Sabotai

(and some others - let me check the signup thread and hold on while I make it function)

Resources

Talk To Me In Korean
Lessons. grammar explanations. Conversational material. Culture. Everything is here!

(copied from 2013 team thread)

Korean Wiki
Project

a good place to learn Hangeul, also has a ton of grammar.

Click Korean
20 beginner lessons on the Seoul National University's website. Include vocabulary,
grammar, listening and reading practice, various exercises. Very good.

Sogang Korean Program
another set of lessons for beginners by a Korean university. [druckfehler: often said
to be too fast for complete beginners]

My Korean
two textbooks with accompanying audio by the Monash University, available for free on
their website. Recommended.

Korean verb conjugator
very useful and reliable

Online Intermediate College
Korean

an excellent course for intermediate learners.

Korean Language
Adventure

looks like a good resource for intermediate learners but registration is required.
[druckfehler: they say you need to register, but it works fine without registration]

KoreanClass101.com
I hear it's a bit similar to TTMIK but it requires registration.

page=Korean%20Grammar%20Database">Korean Grammar Database
contains lots of grammar but the example sentences may have some mistakes

Korean Flashcards
might be useful, not sure

Naver dictionary
Naver is a really big website for Koreans but this link is to the English - Korean
dictionary (both directions).

Daum dictionary
similar to the Naver dictionary

More links
available here


druckfehler's Recommendations

Lessons, Practice with Native Materials:
DLI: G.L.O.S.S. online lessons (lessons
are available for every level and use a wide variety of native materials with audio,
vocabulary lists, grammatical explanations and exercises with an answer key. They have
encouraged me to take the leap and study with native materials in Korean.)

Grammar:
Korean Grammatical Forms (I
like the one Evita suggested better, but this is a good supplement)

Free listening Material:
Audio Books,
Naver Children Book Videos,
Daum Children Book Videos
(many of the videos have Korean, sometimes also English, subtitles)

Free reading Material:
Daum Online Comics,
f_categoryId=1&f_groupId=48&f_subjectId=136">좋은 생각 - magazine with short texts

Interesting sites for advanced students:
Advanced Korean (Newspaper articles with
translations and explanations), Korean Champ (How do
you say... in Korean), Korean Language
Notes
(Vocabulary and Hanja)

Miscellaneous:
Korean Multimedia Dictionary
(dictionary of many basic Korean words with pictures and audio, sorted by topic),
Korean Through
Music
(very thorough explanation of Korean song lyrics)

There is more, but I am not aware of it! Please link to more resources - I'll put them
in here.

Last but not least, we need a good team name. I liked the suggestion of Gumiho, but we
can also do something with something else!

So let's TAC it up! Annihilate that Korean language!

Hooray! Thanks for starting the thread, tarvos!

Here are a few more resources.

My Korean textbook by Monash University (available for free)
Korean Grammar Plus
How To Study Korean
Dongsa.net - verb conjugator (also available as an excellent Android app)
Korean Wiki Project - I find this most useful for examples of grammatical forms
Naver Webtoons - also available on Android as 네이버웹툰

Gumiho sounds good to me, but here are a few other options, just for fun.
- 화이팅 (fighting - "you can do it!" Also, part of the cheer for Team Korea)
- 힘내 (himnae - "cheer up", "you can do it")
- 김치 (kimchi - for obvious reasons)

Thanks for creating the thread, tarvos! I don't know about the team name but please take a look at the first page of TAC 2013 Asian team, druckfehler and I provided a lot of links to resources and they're all listed there. I think it's a good idea to check if the links are still working and if yes then copy them all to this thread.

Thanks for volunteering as team leader and starting the thread, tarvos!

Regarding challenges, the reactions were rather mixed (some liked the format, for some it didn't fit with their study plans). Though I think a suggestion for a challenge is helpful, it might be good to give everyone the option to choose their own challenge if the proposed one doesn't suit their methods... What does everyone else think?

I like the challenges idea, although I don't know how much I'll be able to do. I'm a near-zero beginner, and Korean is priority 3 for me next year. I'm not aiming at producing, but more at aural comprehension so I can watch my kdramas. :D

I'm quite curious how you plan to go about this. I'm sure there must be some method especially suited to gaining drama listening comprehension - maybe learning some stock phrases and specific vocabulary that shows up often? Of course you'll have to study grammar as well, otherwise Korean stays incomprehensible... Maybe I should warn you that it took me 2 years until I could watch dramas without subs and not get frustrated. And there was still a lot I didn't understand.
